    A James Stewart Signed Original Graphite and Pencil Drawing Related to a TV Special, Circa 1970s. Rendered on paper, depicting the star in a smiling headshot as he wears a suit jacket, signed in pencil by the artist on the right side "S. Clay;" further signed by Stewart in black felt-tip ink in the lower right corner "To John / With my thanks / and best wishes. / Jimmy Stewart;" 'John' being John Noel Beebe, the Director of Radio and Television Advertising for Sears in the 1970s who commissioned this drawing which was then used in print advertising for a TV Special, likely the Sears-sponsored show that aired on ABC in 1976 titled "An All-Star Tribute to John Wayne;" consigned directly by the family of Beebe. (Please note the drawing has been mounted to cardboard and is now yellowed, somewhat stained, and wavy due to age.)
